Nvidia releases GeForce 511.79 WHQL game ready drivers: support for Elden Ring & more

It’s not been long since our last Nvidia Driver update, and now the company is looking to add support for new games including the highly-anticipated Elden Ring. With some spurious system requirements released late last week, many gamers have been anxious to see what PC performance actually looks like for the title, since the Elden Ring network test was console-only.

In addition to Elden Ring however are a handful of new and notable games that you’ll want to try out with these shiny, new drivers. We’ve plopped a helpful list of all of the Game Ready drivers added to Nvidia GeForce drivers, meaning that they may also be compatible with GeForce Experience if you wished to use something like Moonlight to access these games away from your main rig.

Features added in GeForce 511.79 Game-Ready driver

New ‘Game-Ready’ titles added in this update:

  • Elden Ring
  • GRID Legends
  • Total War: Warhammer III
  • DLSS support for Martha is Dead
  • Destiny 2: The Witch Queen
  • NVIDIA Reflex support in iRacing

Curiously, they have also now added Reflex support into iRacing. Nvidia reflex is essentially a way of decreasing input lag in-game. iRacing is one of the most popular racing simulators out for PC, with bespoke setups becoming their own little cottage industry. Of course, every peripheral is going to possess some input lag, so you can expect that Reflex support is going to cut right down on any issues that players may be having when it comes to reaction times and input lag, which is of course, crucial to the experience of building out your own simulation rig. We’ve yet to test out this new driver, but it looks pretty promising for users who want the best possible experience, or even use it for training before hitting the track.

Again, support for Elden Ring is added to these drivers, so you can prime your system for its imminent release on February 25, before you begin to explore The Lands Between. Be sure to check out our Elden Ring hub for the latest on FromSoftware’s latest action RPG.
